Sunshine will come again


Published 1901


The Cylinder Archive [www.cylinder.de] release for November 2012:

The Edison Quartette does a beautiful number of 'Sunshine will come again', with a very harmonic waltz-end. This particular cylinder is a re-recorded issue of the first take originally made in 1899, dating from approx. 1901 and pitched at 144rpm. These were the very last cylinder records to be sold by the Edison Phonograph Co. made from the softer brown wax. The sound quality of this record clearly indicates it as a pantographic copy, likely duplicated from an early molded master cylinder.

The lyrics are abridged to fit the cylinder's recording time:

Why droop thy head?
Those eyes moist with dew,
Tell of sadness at thy heart,
Its fibers are bursting in two,

Grief came and stole
Thy happiness away;
Fear not, fortune seldom fails,
So smile another day.

Harbor not sorrow, wait for the morrow,
Tidings of comfort shall reign,
Be of good cheer, better days will be here,
For sunshine will come again.

Wake from thy dreaming, smiles sweetly beaming,
Leaving no traces of pain.
Thy heart so lonely, will echo its joy,
For sunshine will come again.
